200,000 km / 125,000 mile Club

My Opinion:
Vee or V= DL1000 before 2014
Vee2 or V2 = DL1000 2015 to 2019
Vee3 or V3 = DL1050 2020 to?

My Stroms:
2006 DL650: 202,000 km 125,500 miles, Sold
2012 DL650 139,500+ km, 86,700+ miles. Sold
2015 DL1000 New July 2015 205,000+ km, 127,000+ miles.

This can help preventing from cars pulling out in front of you (SMIDSY)

Last oil (and filter) change was at 189,586 km so is due in about 2,400 km so two or three weeks from now. I have a ton of stuff I'm doing over the next few days but if I get ahead of things I **might** change the oil sooner.

I'm on the 14th rear tire including the original one that came with the bike. All my rpelacemnt rtires except one were Tourance "Next". One was an Anlas Winter tire. (IMHO the Tourance Next performed as well as the Anlas down to -18f on dry or lightly snow covered roads.

17c displayed is actually 15c . it was an actual 7c /45f when I left home for work this morning. It hasn't been all that cold this fall here, no frost yet.

Ooooooh, that's fancy. Shows both kms and miles.

New Dunlops (Trailsmart) going on mine tomorrow. 204000 kms. Shucking the spent Shinko rear/Heidenau front setup.

You should pass me next week by the look of things.

I'm putting more kms on the DRZ these days.

These will probably be the last tires I shoe on the Vee and the first "streetish" tires it's ever seen. Hoping for some dry weather this fall/winter to enjoy them to their full potential. Seems I always put new tires on just as winter weather arrives.

Could you please dip into the problems you experienced ( other than having to put fuel into her) in your 200k? I plan on joining you in that club
